Counting with Munsch is as easy as 123!

Introducing the first-ever Robert Munsch counting book, beautifully styled in an oversized board book format perfect for gifting. Just as Classic Munsch ABC helps toddlers master the alphabet, Classic Munsch 123 uses favorite characters and illustrations from the wonderful world of Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko to provide a delightful introduction to numeracy.

Numbers one through twelve are represented as numerals and are spelled out for early reading recognition. At the end, in one of two brand-new illustrations by Michael Martchenko just for this book, a joyful parade introduces the concept of numbers in sequence while providing an opportunity to repeat and reinforce the early numeracy concepts from previous pages. Like its companion ABC, Classic Munsch 123 is a must-have addition to every child's first library.

  • Best-selling brand: Over 70 million Robert Munsch books sold in over 20 countries!
  • Munsch nostalgia: Nostalgia is a hot category, and kids who grew up Munsch are now parents
  • Great for gifting: Counting books in board are a staple baby shower gift item
  • Matched set: Similar look to Classic Munsch ABC to encourage joint purchasing
  • Evergreen genre: 123 books are a timeless favorite that backlist forever

Robert Munsch, author of such classics as The Paper Bag Princess and Thomas’ Snowsuit, is one of North America’s bestselling authors of children’s books.

Michael Martchenko is the award-winning illustrator of the Classic Munsch series and many other beloved children's books. He was born north of Paris, France, and moved to Canada when he was seven. He lives in Toronto with his wife, Patricia.

“A high-spirited text housed in a sturdy board book is partnered with illustrations that are action-packed and simply delightful. They are full of colour, expression and detail. The large, colourful numbers dance through the pages introducing young readers to the skill of numeracy.”

Classic Munsch 123 is an obvious home, childcare and public library purchase, but it would not be out a place in kindergarten classrooms.”

“A delightful and slightly zany introduction to numeracy.”
